SKK Judo Club
In June 2006, the new state of the art facility opened its doors and has since grown from strength to strength into a well-established, thriving Children's Judo Club.
The modernised Dojo, alongside Head Coach, Peter Blood's 30 years experience, has provided huge opportunities for thousands of children throughout the years.
Whether your child is looking for a recreational approach, with judo being for discipline, respect and fitness, or your child is aspiring to become a full time athlete, we have the infrastructure and the facilities to help them achieve their full potential.
SKK is one of the most successful Judo clubs in the country, taking players from learning fundamental Judo to producing Olympians, European & Commonwealth Champions.
Throughout the year, children have the opportunity to go away to training camps and competitions to places such as the Isle of Man, Spain, Poland, Belgium and many more! These trips are heavily subsidised by the club and we do regular fundraising to raise money for these. For lots of children, this is often their first time away from their parents and can be quite nerve-wracking for you both! But
every single child has an amazing time and we pack in as many fun activities alongside Judo as we possibly can.
The venue is used for Judo 3 nights a week, Bootcamp 3 days a week and is also hired out regularly to outside groups such as Geoamey and Local Rugby/Karate Clubs.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our Dojo and hope you really enjoy judo with us!
